After a lot of advice from other Lumberjocks members I have eventually got around to putting a new shelving unit up. God will i miss the old one… had character.

It looks like you got to it in the nick of time. It could have caused a big mess or worse. Nice work.

I like the design you had on the old one with the swaying shelves and titling walls. I don’t think the new one will have the ability to do the same…are you sure you will be please with the new study shelves

The new one seems to lack the character of the old one. It’s something I keep reminding my grand kids of.
